Workers' compensation is in place to assist workers who are injured on the job, but it rarely provides enough compensation to cover an injured worker's long-term medical costs and replace lost income. This is especially true in construction site accidents, which can result in serious injuries that prevent a worker from returning to work for an extended period or even disable someone permanently.
You may have been told that workers' compensation prohibits workplace injury victims from seeking additional compensation through personal injury lawsuits. This is not true.
If another party other than your employer or co-worker was partially responsible for your construction accident injury, you may be able to bring a third-party liability claim against that party.
